Dr. Hwang's Care Philosophy

Throughout my career one fundamental principle has guided my approach to patient care. For each patient I strive to provide the kind of care that I would want for my own family and bring my best expertise judgment and empathy to guide patients to restore and maintain long-term health. I know that the work that I do isnt just for the patients who I directly care for but it affects the whole family. Being a mother and a wife helps bring that perspective to the work I do. I never lose sight of how important it is to treat the whole family and to recognize the effects of disease on it. I believe that Duke offers patients the best and most advanced care that they can get anywhere in the world. Ive been touched by cancer in my life. Just being on the receiving end of healthcare makes you very sensitive about the things required for the patient to feel like they are getting the best possible care.
